Flag of Texas.png
Voters in Texas will elect one member to the U.S. Senate in the November 4, 2014 elections.

Texas is one of 21 states with a mixed primary system. Voters do not have to register with a party. At the primary, they may choose which party primary ballot to vote on, but in order to vote they must sign a pledge declaring they will not vote in another party's primary or convention that year.[1][2]

The election will fill the Senate seat currently held by John Cornyn (R). Cornyn was first elected in 2002.

Candidates
